UIC Barcelona Conference ‘The European identity Roots and Scope’
UIC Barcelona Conference: ‘The European identity: Roots and Scope’
8 March 2018
Theme of the conference:
After many years of relative stability in Europe and continuous growth in the number of European Union member states, we are now observing various phenomena that have altered the reality of our continent. Firstly, the recent Jihadist terrorist attacks have raised serious problems with regards to security and intercultural coexistence. Furthermore, the Brexit announcement gives, for the first time, a clear message that regression in Europe is possible and will partly deprive the Union of the richness of the British culture. And lastly, the refugee crisis in Europe has been a major blow to our collective conscience and put into question the validity of the values on which the European Union is based.
